Ron was never going to

We didn't need Benton to tell us this, and nobody should be shocked or mad at Benton over this news.

Ron was never going to endorse Johnson. Anyone who ever thought he was does not know Ron very well at all. Ron has only endorsed 3 people for POTUS since 1976. Ronald Reagan. Pat Buchanan. Chuck Baldwin. In the case of Pat Buchanan, Ron served as a campaign adviser. Ron does not, has not, and will not endorse a pro-choice candidate for POTUS. Though he does not scream it from the rooftops like many pro-life people do, if you ask Ron he will tell you its one of the most important issues he considers. I have have asked him and he has told me. More than once over the years. Feel free to do the same if you get the opportunity.

He is a man of principle and conviction.

This why I think when Ron indicated that the door may still be open for a third party run, we squandered our chance by trying to push Ron as VEEP to Johnson. We should have been pushing for a total LP shakeup, asked Johnson to step aside as he indicated he would, and pushed Ron for POTUS.

The window was very narrow and it may too late.
